Popular Forms Of Cosmetic Surgery In Las Vegas Today
Las Vegas Laser & Lipo offers cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures. Here is a look at some of our more popular cosmetic procedures.
Fat Transfer for Natural Breast Augmentation
Natural enhancement of the body’s physical attributes such as the breasts or buttocks continues to grow in popularity and can now be accomplished using a method referred to as fat transfer. Essentially, unwanted fat is gently extricated from a person’s designated donor areas using liposuction and then carefully relocated to a different body location. Other enhancement procedures such as facial rejuvenation or lip augmentation can also take advantage of the fat transfer process.
Donor sites for collecting fat cells may include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks or other areas of the body containing donor fat. Fat cells make natural breast augmentation and buttock augmentation possible because they possess regenerative properties. After being woven and blended into a specific area, the fat cells actually become part of the living tissues.
The whole process is designed to produce an increase in the volume of a particular body part while providing a natural appearance and feel to the tissues. Natural augmentation through fat transfer is a straightforward, outpatient procedure that offers a quick and easy recovery.
Laser-assisted liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures being performed today. Laser Lipo is a minimally invasive method of body sculpting that utilizes laser energy to melt away unwanted fat. The laser is used to smooth the sub dermal layer of fat, which condenses the tissue and tightens the skin. The radiant energy of the laser also stimulates the body’s creation of collagen, causing the tissues of the affected area to contract resulting in smoother and tighter skin.
Laser Lipo is gentle enough to use on numerous areas of the body such as the neck, belly and thighs. The laser is precisely calibrated to emit energy wavelengths that greatly affect the unwanted fat while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This helps the cosmetic surgeon produce the anticipated results for the patient and allows for a quicker recovery.
Laser skin resurfacing uses the intense, pulsating light of a laser to enhance the look of your skin with the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and scarring.
Using a fractional laser, damaged layers of skin are removed to blend the pigment together and help improve the overall texture and tone while smoothing the skin’s surface. Laser resurfacing can be used to tighten loose skin and reduce the effects of crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and acne scars.
As your body heals, it produces collagen that gives your skin a much younger and healthier appearance.
Softening Facial Lines with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin Injections
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injections are used to block the receptors in certain facial muscles so that nerve signals cannot be received to make the muscle contract. As a result, this causes the softening of lines and wrinkles resulting from squinting, laughing, smiling or frowning.
It is important to remember that these treatments were designed to give an individual a more pleasant and relaxed look, not prevent a person from producing facial expressions.
As a general rule, the effects of Botox, Dysport and Xeomin tend to last approximately three to six months, although the number of previous injections a patient has received can make the results last even longer.
Cosmetic Beauty Lifts
Some of the most commonly performed procedures in cosmetic surgery are cosmetic lifts. Face lifts, forehead lifts, eyelid lifts and neck lifts are in great demand because they can give an individual tighter, smoother and younger looking skin. The technological advancements of our age and the skill of today’s plastic surgeons make it possible for a cosmetic lift to appear quite natural for the patient and virtually undetectable to anyone else.
